Well, DL, we did an "age" thread long ago, just like the "location?" thread below, but my guess is we have too many newbies to make it meaningful to just revisit the old one.

My sense of it is most everyone falls into the 30-50 range, with a serious glut around 45-55...

Maybe that's just cause I am 52 going on 91.

Ha! 52 and he thinks he's in the 30-50 range. How's life in these golden years treating you? Still wipe yourself, or do you have "people"?

If you knew how close you were to the truth, you'd feel bad about mentioning it!

So THERE!

I think...

52?

You mean we're the same age?

And there was I thinking of you as the Ancient One to my Doctor Strange(love), Master Po to my Kwai Chang Caine.

And there you are, a mere contemporary after all.

You must have FORGOTTEN (har, har). Or at least I think so...?

Reason being, I somehow knew YOU were 52.

Hmmm, not sure how to take the comments above about everyone thinking I was so much older...guess that's because this broken down carcass with all its problems somehow translates via the posting process, or it's because I am such a whiner about whatever happens to be bothering me on a given day.

Always good to see you here Rob!

38 years old, first (3) shows were 1994 Capital Center. It was walking distance from my apartment in Largo MD, and I got to see all the freaks, so I said what the hey. I guess was a severely late bloomer.

Mama said to stay away from those people back when I was younger. What does she know.

it seems to me to that that is the range, mature but still with enough spirit to make this a fun place to be. Just because you're 40 or 50, or 60 or 91 doesnt mean yo're old

52? damn I thought you were old.

Fellow forumites I hereby declare our PM to be a "teller of untruths". Been telling me he was old. He's just a kid.

Oh, by his mathematical equation I am 58 going on 97. As Bobby Z might say, "I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now."
